Workplace Acoustics

Solutions for Noisy Buildings & Advice on Building Design

Every building, workspace, meeting room or video conferencing suite is different. However, they will all fail as working environments if you cannot communicate effectively. Noise is tiring, frustrating and distracting. We help create spaces where people are comfortable, a conversation is private, and people can concentrate.

Workplace acoustics covers a range of subject areas in building construction including services such as air conditioning, wall, ceiling and floor surfaces, the type of doors, windows, office screens, partitions and furniture.

What our clients want to achieve is a space that has the best acoustic performance to suit their business need, be that a contact centre, an atrium, a training room or video conferencing suite, or just a general office.

Our Service

Our clients bring us consultancy and design projects that are both:

  • Pre-construction to ensure that they are ?designing in? optimal acoustics into new buildings
  • Post-construction, where people find that their office and working spaces are too noisy and not ?fit for purpose?. This leads to urgent remedial action

Our Approach

Understanding the source of a noise problem is key to solving it. We will start with an analysis of your current space or ?model? your new building.

Reporting on what we find, we will build in your requirements in any recommendations we make.? These will include your expected people ?traffic flow? or occupancy and any aesthetic needs.

Our acoustic engineers have a range of products and solutions to?help prevent or solve noise issues. ?They have three approaches:

  • Absorption
    The use of materials to?absorb sound energy and reduce?reflection, such as absorption panels or ceiling islands

  • Blocking
    The use of sound barriers to?prevent sound travelling in straight paths; typically using screens, pods or other specialist furniture

  • Cover
    Ensuring appropriate background?sound levels that promote concentration?and privacy which is typically achieved by using sound masking

Once we have created you a design proposal, we can take it through to installation and completion, providing you with all the engineering and construction effort required.

We Partner With the Best

The day to day running of the business has been transformed. When we trialled Office 365, our engineers offered to pay for it personally if we had chosen not to have it! They liked accessing their diaries, emails, and files from anywhere at any time from not only their work laptops, but iPhones and even their home computers too ? this helped with the smooth running of the business and helped them manage their own time and customers more efficiently.

Our new IT and hosted phone systems are by far quicker, smoother and more reliable than they were
previously. Far less frustration and downtime meaning increased productivity.

Henry, London Residential Management (lrm)

Before I discovered CSUK, I was reluctant to upgrade my communications because I thought it would be costly and complicated. In fact, the team at CSUK made the whole process simple. They organised my IT, email and phone communications providing competitively-priced, high quality systems that have made my life much easier. This in turn has improved my professional profile as my clients can see that I am now using enterprise level tools.? It was all so simple, just like the Jabra Evolve 65 headset, that I now use with my PC softphone and mobile.? The headset was easy to install and gives me greater clarity of sound, as well as mobility so that I can move around more freely when I am training.

We originally found Communications Solutions UK (CSUK) through WEConnect, a partner that we use for engaging with diverse suppliers. CSUK have been able to support us in a number of areas, both tactical and strategic. In this project, it was their expertise and abilities around the acoustic environment that have proven especially important to us.

CSUK identified problem areas in the building based on a scientific approach that involved measurement and calculation. With these findings, they designed a solution to achieve the right acoustic performance levels that met both our requirements and budget.

The cost savings that Communications Solutions UK have secured for our business have been important, but equally I value their friendly and helpful service. Over the years I have always been able to rely on a prompt response to my enquiries and working with their team is always a pleasant experience.

Payal, Enterprise Rent-A-Car

CSUK were able to offer us fantastic impartial advice about all the products. The expertise they offered us far outweighed the value that any of the other organisations we were looking at could give us.

I just wanted to let you how things were going with the headset you recommended. I have been using it for the last 5 days and it is perfect. Very lightweight and the ear piece is nice and small. It is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much for your help, it is much appreciated.
